This week Cold Blue expands on another story from last year’s ‘Summer Chills’ LP, singling out the track ‘Painting Skies’. Devolving it from the album version’s chillout origins, he’s brought in Sunny Lax to deliver something more foot-moving in nature.
The release includes Tobias’ original design for ‘Painting Skies’. Beat-free, with a rising and falling intensity, hinged around sometimes-sombre strings, nagging note arrangements and big chord sweeps, it provides the spur for Sunny’s mix.
Along with the fundamental elements of its melodic structure, the Hungarian retains all the heart of the original. From there though Levente Márton breaks north for the clubfloor, applying acidic squall, bass surf and aquatic FX, harmonics and chime - all driven by his key changes.
